Location chosen for new Yekaterinburg TV tower

Regional leaders have decided where in Yekaterinburg they will build a new TV tower.

Officials have approved a location for future towers, agreeing to build a state structure for the towers instead of using a currently unused site at the center of the city, Mir66 reports.

The tower will be built in the Shishimskoy area and the tower will reach a height of 300 meters.

There was much debate about the location of the new tower. The center of town was said to be a good location for signal propagation. Others felt that an area outside the center would reduce the amount of area needed for the construction.

There has still been criticism over alternative locations and authorities have compiled a list of other potential sites that is currently awaiting approval, Mir66 reports.
